Instantaneous Acceleration

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Instantaneous acceleration, abbreviated as \(a_i\), is the acceleration at a particular moment in time along its path.

Instantaneous Acceleration Formula

\(\large{ a_i = \frac { d v} {d t }   }\)         

Where:

\(\large{ a_i }\) = instantaneous acceleration

\(\large{ dt }\) = time differential

\(\large{ dv }\) = velocity differential
